* HilariousInHindsight: Slippy mentions that the Arwings can withstand temperatures up to 9000 degrees. The North American release was released before ''DragonBallZ'' and its infamous "Over 9000!" meme.

** Andross can be quite the scare given how he suddenly pops up, after going through a dark corridor with his [[EvilSoundsDeep deep menacing voice]] taunting you, he's a freaking giant head floating in the air, and one of his attacks consists of inhaling you, chewing up, and spitting you out. The music and the grunts and laughs he makes don't help either. It gets worse if you take the Hard route. Once Andross is "defeated", you get to fight ''[[spoiler:his brain and floating eyeballs!]]'' The music playing in the tunnel leading up to him is no slouch either, and the tunnel being different in Venom 2 helps add to the suspense.
* NightmareRetardant: What's the first thing Andross does when [[spoiler: he's reduced to his brain form? ''Make a pun.'']]

** Andross in the remake. Same introduction to the boss fight, but the EvilLaugh he gives sounds so forced he cuts a lot of the fear.
* RetroactiveRecognition: Peppy and Andross are voiced by Rick May, also known as [[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 the Soldier]].

* TearJerker: The good ending. [[DisappearedDad Fox's dad]] James [=McCloud=], apparently BackFromTheDead (though [[EpilepticTrees we're not sure]]), leads Fox out as the fortress on Venom explodes. Then, once they're almost out, James says "[[SoProudOfYou you've become so strong, Fox]]," and vanishes. As Fox leaves Venom, his wingmen congratulate him, with Fox looking around desperately for his father, unable to find him.

to:

* TearJerker: SpecialEffectFailure: In the 3DS remake, the Star Fox team running on rocky terrain during the credits looks just fine... as long as it's not viewed in 3D. In 3D, the depth perception between the characters (and their shadows) and the ground is off, with the characters appearing much closer to the camera than the ground. As a result, it looks like the characters are suspended in the air rather than running on the ground. It's a shame, because the 3D effects are otherwise very well done in the game.

*** Fichina's problem with getting a high score is an actual lack of targets. It's arguably the easiest medal in the game; the necessary score is so low (only 50 hits, the lowest in the game), beating Star Wolf gets you almost all of the hits you need.

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: The redubbed voice acting in the 3DS remake received this reaction for being inferior to the original. The backlash intensified with the revelation that the voice actors would carry over into the fourth installment of ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' and later ''VideoGame/StarFoxZero''.

* BestBossEver: Any time you fight Star Wolf: a challenging dog fight against an evil mercenary team whose abilities match and later surpasses your own team's. It's not uncommon for players to take the Blue route through Fichina, then changing to the Red route to go to Venom through Area 6 just to fight Star Wolf ''twice''. In fact, on Venom, each of Star Wolf is worth ''51 points'' if you kill them fast enough, meaning that if you quickly take all four of them down without losing any wingmen, getting the medal is a simple matter of finishing the level at your own pace.

** This comes to a head on Sector Z for those chasing its medal: At least one of your allies will go after each missile, and if it's one of their shots that blows up the missile, ''you get no points for it!''

And you ''need'' to destroy each missile to hit the 100-point quota, as the six missiles are worth 66 points total and other sources of score are scarce.

* AnnoyingVideoGameHelper: ''All of the team'' qualifies. Falco is a condescending jerk who's supposed to be the [[GameplayAndStorySegregation team's ace]], but gets in trouble often and throws backhanded compliments at you. Peppy gives gameplay hints that are useless to second-time players and just can't shut up about the protagonist's deceased father. And Slippy has the uncanny ability to get in trouble more often than not and screw up your medals.

** Titania in every way possible. The stage itself isn't too bad, even though for some odd reason several dangerous machines are trying to attack you ''in the middle of the desert''. What makes this stage annoying is that you have to use the [[ScrappyMechanic Landmaster]], which some players hate. The only reason why you even go to this god-forsaken planet is to save [[TheScrappy Slippy]], who some players also hate. And unlike Macbeth, Titania's boss doesn't give you the option to earn fifty hitpoints, [[ThatOneSidequest so getting the medal is frustrating]]. Finally, if you care about which road you're taking, going through this stage locks you out of going to Area 6 and, by extension, the backdoor Venom route.

Needless to say, General Pepper had a point when he warned Star Fox that Titania was too dangerous.

** When you die and your teammates are still there, they'll give a [[BigNo Big NO!]]. If you die ''alone'', though, you're treated to Fox's grisly last moments where he '''screams'''. Pretty horrifying for young first-time players, to say the least.

* ViewerGenderConfusion: Some confuse Slippy to be a girl due to his high-pitched feminine sounding voice. The 3DS remake makes his gender more apparent, making him sound more like a young boy instead of a girl.

** Allowing the base on Katina to get destroyed. Not only do the Cornerian fighters not join you for the post-mission report, but depressing music plays in place of the usual victory theme while Fox curses himself for his failure.
